Journalist claims Milan intend to make move for ‘a hidden gem’ in Slovenia

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan’s whole approach on the mercato has changed since Geoffrey Moncada, along with Giorgio Furlani, took over the operation. One of their targets, a journalist claims, is a 21-year-old Nigerian forward. 

According to the journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Milan’s scouting department have identified Chukwubuikem Ikwuemesi as a ‘hidden gem’ and the Rossoneri would like to anticipate the competition. As such, they could make a move soon.

Ikwuemesi is 21 years old and plays for the Slovenian side NK Celje. This past season, he scored nine goals and assisted an additional five. At 195 centimetres tall, he could be an interesting one and it remains to be seen if Milan will make a move.

It would certainly be a signing with Moncada written all over it, as the Chief Scout has always been known for finding more or less unknown players. In the meantime, Milan are also awaiting the response from Marcus Thuram who is the priority for the attack.

    1. LOL, I was thinking the same thing. Instead of Gre-No-Li, maybe we’ll have Chuk-Chuk-Chuk. Or maybe Chuk^3?

  1. Hahahahahahahahahahahah. In Slovenia Colombo would score 20 goals in a season. Are you kidding me? This guy is our CF target? I hope that is the 3rd striker option…

    1. Btw. Why not buy Petkovic who just scored a great goal against Netherlands and also in the world cup against Brazil? He was great against Milan as well. He played in Italy, he knows the language and would cost 4-5M. He is better than most targets we have had…And Giroud probably.

  2. The word Chukwu means God is the southern region part of Nigeria and Ubuiken means my strength..

    Chukwubuikem simply means God is my strength

  3. Jesus Christ! Things are getting more and more depressive with each day that passes! Some unpronouncable Nigerian who managed to score 9 gals in Slovenia!
    This club is going down!

  4. If they’re going through with this transfer best we collect all the Chukus and that way we can see all 3 up top, it’ll be the highlight of my season 😂😂😂

  5. I wonder the sudden madness about Nigerian strikers. Osimen incredible success does not mean all other Nigerian strikers will achieve same. Enough of all this myopic thinking from Milan management.
